Almost all manufactures that come from England, France, and Switzerland are received indirectly either through Smyrna or Constantinople, Beirut or Alexandria. The chief liquors are wine and spirits from Cyprus.

ALEPPO–J. DE PICCIOTTA, Vice-Consul.

November 27, 1862. The commercial movements of our place during the year ended December 31, 1862, has turned almost exclusively this year upon three articles. The cottons come in the first rank, and play the principal character, in consequence of the unhappy civil war in the United States. The cotton culture prospers prodigiously in every part of the Ottoman empire, the cultivation being encouraged by the prompt and advantageous return which this production finds, and especially by the facilities and encouragements which the local government gives them, and by the action of England, which excites the avidity of the cultivators, in giving them gratuitously the grains for such as resemble the cottons. During the past year the cottons of our vicinity have been sold to this time for 1,500 piasters the quintal of two hundred okeş. By degrees the prices have advanced, and sales have been made for even two thousand five hundred piasters per quintal.

The crop of this year in the Pachalic of Aleppo is not abundant, from the ravages of the locusts, which have been so extensive that, by an approximate estimate, the crop of this year will not exceed two thousand quintals of good quality. This article commands at present from 2,800 to 3,000 piasters the quintal, according to quality. It is necessary to add to this about 400 piasters to put it aboard ship. The greater part of the crop has been bought up by our merchants with the intention of forwarding to Marseilles.

Wool, both washed and unwashed. has not had less success than the cottons. In the outset the unwashed wool was sold at 1,600 piasters, and the washed at 3,000 per quintal. Afterwards both descriptions took such a flight that they found purchasers, the former at 2,000 and the latter at 4,000 piasters. It is current that the heavy demand coming from Europe has been the cause of this great advance. The whole of Aleppo and its environs has produced this year about 2,500 quintals of unwashed wool. Mesopotamia has also furnished us about five thousand quintals of washed wool, all of which has been exported to Marseilles, where they found a rapid and advantageous sale. The English manufactures constitute always the principal resource of our place, and supply our bazars. It is incredible that these manufactures are sold at a profit of 30 per cent. on delivery, now that our place is nearly destitute of merchandise, for gradually they are carried off by the retailers, the merchants generally not venturing to store in their warehouses while they apprehend a sudden fall in all kinds of cotton, England has also furnished us about 500 barrels of sugar, of copper in plates, and iron in bars. France also has furnished her contingent of sugar, coffee, and cloths. The manufactures of Switzerland, the principal of which consists in handkerchiefs called yasma, have not greatly figured this year in our bazars, because they present greater adaptation to the European market on account of the high price of cotton. The crop of nutgalls has been abundant ; the prices, consequently, have sensibly yielded in our market. Nutgalls at this time are worth from 2,500 to 3,000 piasters the quintal, (quality black and fresh) and payable in sterling livres in proportions of 145 piasters. But they have somewhat been dropped on account of the difficulty of making sales in the European markets. From an approximate estimate the crop of this year will give more than 3,000 quintals. To the present there have arrived only about 200 quintals, but we are daily expecting a large caravan freighted with a great quantity.

The crop of cereals compared with that of the previous year was comparatively moderate. The exportation of these commodities has been almost nothing.

The totals of the year have been sufficiently fruitful in good results both in the exports and imports, and our old merchants will hardly remember to havę seen such animation and activity in the market of Aleppo; a year which will constitute an epoch in the commercial annals of our city.
